It's hard to believe that November is almost ending. Today I want to share a simple project I made from empty cereal box. Its cardboard is fantastic for die cutting simple shapes. It was made in early Autumn but if you use red and green and some Poinsettias, it would be lovely Christmas gift.
All frames are cut with largest and 3rd largest dies from Label Two set. I covered frames with VersaMark ink and some embossing powders. I used Hit the Beach, Green Apple and Magic Speckle EPs.
On the photo in first frame is my cat soon after hi came to our home. He looks very proud while sitting on top of the aquarium.
It would have been wierd to show empty frames so I something to each frame. On secon frame is a digital version of Sunflower stamp set. Image is colored with markers. I like this sentiment and the sunflower image inspired me to decorate the frames with same flowers.
Sunnflowers are made with dies from Blooms Four set. They are cut from white cardstock and inked with Scattered Straw and Dandelion inks. I shaped them with stylus and adhered together. For flower centers I cut small circles out of brown cardstock and adhered hem to flowers. They are covered with Dimensional Glue and Bronze Splendor glitter.
Leaves are cut out from Sticker Paper with Sprigs die. I covered them with Lator Gator and Luau Green glitters.
To attach all three frames together I used approx. 80 cm long white twine. I colored half of it with light green marker and made a twisted cord. You can see the cord slightly better on previous photos.
Each frame is made from following layers (starting from bottom): Cardboard label (third image on the template), twisted cord, brown cardstock label (3rd image), Cardboard picture nest (2nd image), Acetate label and frame (1st image)
Full instructions of how this project was made is in the SNS Gallery here.
